Source: Author's calculations.to reduce its average population growth rate for the 20 years from 3 to 2.4 percent per year equal the investment needed to produce and to maintain 41 percent of its initial level (e.g., of manpower and facilities). Expressed as reduction in the requirement or investment needed without natality control the figure would be much lessó15.5 percent.
